thanks to all who responded to my "draggin jeans" post. led me to many (!) websites of other makes of mc wearing gear. my question: how many riders (i ride a 750 honda shadow - aero) actually wear impact protective gear, or only abrasion protective gear? when i bought my bike i promised my spouse i would be as careful as possible, and that includes what i wear. the impact gear looks very uncomfortable and cumbersome - is it worth it? at all effective? good abrasion gear enough? all feedback appreciated.
